Ms. Jackie Hidalgo

Greetings!  I am Jackie Hidalgo, CCR Advisor. Originally from California, I moved to Texas in 1999 and have been at Hightower High School ever since! I have been the College & Career Readiness Advisor since 2013.

After I graduated from high school, I enlisted in the U.S. Navy, wanting to "see the world."  Life ensued, and several years later, I was married, with children. I did eventually return to school, eager to begin my studies and obtain a degree.

While I did not pursue my secondary education immediately after high school, getting a college degree was always in my just took me a little longer to get there! I am passionate about helping students figure out and create their post-secondary plans. My role as CCR Advisor allows me to do this, and I am available to all Hightower students, and their parents, who need help.

  • College & Career Resource Center
    The CCR center will be open for students to seek advisement, work on college applications, apply for scholarships, write and revise college essays, pick up college brochures, and attend college visits. Parents are also welcome to the resource center if they have questions and concerns regarding post secondary education/careers. 

    The CCR Center is located in room C-2.
